Who Are Tati Gabrielle Parents?
California native actress Tati Gabrielle was born to her parents Traci Hewwit and Terry Hobson as one of three children in the Bay area of California on 25 January 1996. Growing up, Tati was too busy observing others to seek out the spotlight for herself. “My mom says I was people-watching from the time that I was a little baby,” she told EliteDaily, and she still sees people-watching as the foundation of acting.
Tati Gabrielle described her upbringing as African American with hints of Asian culture. “If you walk into my house in the Bay” — and you do have to take your shoes off at the door, she says — “it’s decorated in all kinds of like Asian decorations.”
“I really enjoyed growing up as a mixed kid, […] the Bay being such a diverse place and this beautiful melting pot,” she told the outlet.
Tati was a karate student who wanted to be an animator. She used to be a tomboy and occasionally people still mistake her for a boy, which doesn’t bother her. She made a friend at the Oakland School for the Arts named Kehlani, who frequented Gabrielle’s home and assisted her in her quest to adopt an abandoned kitty discovered during a party.
“The energy it took to hide this cat from her mom in her room was so funny,” says Kehlani. “She’s always been like that, you know; she’s always seen when a person that didn’t have friends needed a friend or a person or an animal that didn’t have a family needed at home.”
As they dealt with the stress that comes with being in the public eye, Gabrielle and Kehlani developed a sisterly closeness over time that served as a support system. “Only people who really, really know you and understand what you’re going through can help you in that situation,” Kehlani told the outlet. “It’s nice to have someone that I know in both ways and that I know I can rely on their advice because they love me genuinely and I love them genuinely.”
Tati left Northern California to study drama and French at the Atlanta historically Black women’s college Spelman, and, she says, “It wasn’t until I got into college actually that it started becoming… not difficult, but it became more apparent to me that I was different or that the way that I was raised was different.”
Meet Traci Hewitt, Tati Gabrielle Mother
In Spring 2022, Tati Gabrielle and her mother Traci Hewwit visited South Korea. However, some elders didn’t consider her to be truly Korean because of her mixed heritage. Traci is half-Black and half-Korean. Tati went on her first trip, and her mother returned for the first time since she was adopted by a Black American family when she was 4 years old. They searched for Gabrielle’s mother’s birth parents for a month without luck.
“It was a very emotional trip, a very insightful trip,” Gabrielle told EliteDaily. “None of it felt foreign, which was really incredible to me… I got drawn to [the culture] really quickly, which was really comforting — to know that, even though you’ve never been to a place that’s a part of your roots, that it can still connect to you in such a way.”
